"Yarn Whirled : Fairy Tales, Fables, And Folklore"

Hello, and welcome to yarn whirled! I am so excited to finally be able to show everyone my new book, and, I am even more delighted to introduce the simple and novel yarn craft I have created.

What is yarn whirled? Yarn whirled is a wonderful new way to make the most adorable characters from yarn! The characters require no prior skill, no special tools, and are nearly needle -free!

There is no armature, the figures are made completely out of wound yarn

And, although it seems impossible, they are sturdy, and relatively firm.

I don't know which physics properties are at work - I just know the results are magical!

My newest book "Yarn Whirled : Fairy Tales, Fables and Folklore", published by Dover Publishing)  is  chock full of sweet yarn figures to make.

The book has very clear step by step directions, so that any interested crafter should be able to make a design with great results.

I hope you like my new book, and are willing to give this new craft a " whirl " : )
The book is available on the Dover Publishing website, and at, as well as at numerous other book sellers and craft stores.

Check back soon for my next post about an exciting new promo video for yarn whirled! And, if you can't wait to see more designs, look on Pinterest, and Facebook, for yarn whirled.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts, and can't wait to see your finished projects!


  1. I cant wait to give it a whirl and try making one of these cute characters. The directions are well written and illustrated. Looking forward to working on my project.

    1. Thanks for visiting Marjorie! They are fun to make. I hope you enjoy the book.

  2. This book is just adorable. It is hard to decide which character to make first!!!
    I bought the Kindle edition, I actually happened on this book by mistake and after looking at a preview of the paperback book on, I just had to have it.
    The characters are just adorable and I hope your other books will become available for Kindle users.
    Thank you for such a great book. It works good on the Kindle app for Mac and Android and my iPhone!!! At least I am having no problem with the book on those apps.

  3. Hi!
    Thanks for visiting. I am glad you found my book, even if it was by accident. I hope you enjoy making some of these characters, and I'd love to see pictures!
